What Motherhood Is For Me
Motherhood is knowing joy, even while experiencing the hardest trials of life. Nothing else can produce the joy or broken heart that motherhood allows.
I couldn’t imagine going through life without feeling that spectrum of emotion. There are wonderful days when I feel my cup runneth over. There are days that I want to run away and question every decision I have ever made. Feeling it all, good or bad, gives my life purpose. Motherhood is walking around with all of your nerve endings raw and exposed. It is the most extreme measure of being alive.
I’ve experienced more adventure in mothering my sons than ever imaginable. Motherhood gives me an excuse to stay young forever, kicking off my shoes and letting down my hair while enjoying love beyond measure.
Motherhood is the toughest yet most rewarding job
I love seeing little pieces of myself in them. I love that I get the privilege of shaping the minds of two beautiful children and providing a wonderful example for them.
I love being a mother. I know I am good at it. Because I’m a big kid at heart, I enjoy revisiting the magic of childhood through their experiences.
I am sure other mothers can relate to the challenges of schooling kids during the COVID-19 pandemic times. To say that it was difficult will be an understatement.
Disciplining children during their online classes is not an easy task. Doing that while my toddler demanded equal attention was one multitasking experience! But hey! multi-tasking and motherhood go hand in hand! Managing two sons along with taking care of the household chores was not easy but I am proud that I managed it.
We can think of motherhood as one of the toughest unpaid jobs in the whole wide world but there is nothing I would trade for loving and taking care of my kids!
